Color concept Multigrind® Styx simulation software in blue and green tones

HAAS - Color concept Simulation software Multigrind® Styx

Industrial technology

We congratulate our customer Haas Schleifmaschinen on the successful presentation of the simulation software Multigrind® Styx at this year's EMO in Hannover. We were allowed to support successfully with the coloring of the 3D representations.

The "Multigrind® Styx" is a simulation software in addition to the current operating interface "Multigrind® Horizon" of Haas grinding machines. The software enables corrections to be made to the setting parameters in relation to the machining processes in a preview. It virtually displays the final grinding result, allowing the operator to detect and correct errors before starting the grinding operations.

The special feature of the 3D implementation is that the individual machining steps have been implemented in a color concept that matches the corporate design, giving the workpieces and the software a very modern and harmonious appearance, which is perfectly suited to a software with this degree of innovation.

The colors show in contrast all surfaces to be machined for the evaluation of the grinding result. The color tones correlate with selected machining steps, i.e. they are coded. Corrections can be made by selecting individual surfaces or elements.

About Haas Schleifmaschinen GmbH:

Nearly 90 years ago, Adelbert Haas built his first universal grinding machine. Since then, the goal of Haas Schleifmaschinen has been: to advance the industry. With pioneering solutions, such as Multigrind® Styx, Haas Schleifmaschinen continues to lead the way in grinding technology.

The grinding machines from the Multigrind® series and the Multigrind® Horizon grinding software are relied on by renowned tool manufacturers, metalworking companies, the automotive industry, aerospace and medical technology companies around the world. For these customers, Haas Schleifmaschinen is constantly working on new economical, highprecision and fully automated machining solutions.

As early as 2008, BUSSE Design+Engineering was able to support Haas Schleifmaschinen in the optical redesign of the then newly launched Multigrind ®CB.

Our chief designer Michael Tinius on the special features of the grinding machine: "We attached importance to straight surfaces and lines, to a monolithic appearance that conveys precision with its aesthetics and thus corresponds to the character of the machine. Without practicing product cosmetics, we point to the inner values via the exterior."

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
